Title:Technical services in an automated library
Author(s):Gorman, Michael

Disruptive technologies
Abstract:The context in which this paper is set is that of the research library. The automation of technical processes in those libraries is already underway, is increasing and should be encouraged. I shall not here address the topic of the organization of technical processing in the future "paperless library"; rather, it is my belief that in the medium-term future, technical processing, as outlined in this paper, will provide a structure not only to meet medium term future needs and exigencies but also to be responsive to the drastic changes in our communication systems that are implied by the terms "electronic" or "paperless" society.
